Do you enter the words with or without accents? You should enter them with accents.

About the encoding: the setting was not saved. That's fixed for the next version. - Dec 18 2005
sudoku

Various Games by sophyn 9 comments

Are you aware of the KSudoku project? Probably you're re-inventing the wheel.

Two points:
* You wrote sudoku wrong in your title bar :)
* I think spin boxes are not the best method to fill a sudoku. I like the way of directly entering numbers in the cells, like in KSudoku.

Some drivers *shrug*ATI*shrug* don't support composite yet, so I'm still fine with bitmaps. - Oct 14 2005
KNetDockApp

Network by yodor 109 comments

But "KNemo" is already in KDE-Extragear/Network branch; which means it will be a part of KDE sooner or later.

That's not true. Almost every application in extragear is there because they don't want to be part of the default KDE modules. The advantages are that you can have your own release schedule but still be part of the SVN repository. - Oct 14 2005
Yakuake

System Software by Sho 1027 comments

(Ya)kuake is exactly what I've been looking for, for a while. Thanks for that! Konsole has been removed from my quick launch bar since I installed your application.

I found a minor bug with YaKuake in combination with virtual desktops. When I open YaKuake in desktop 1, switch to desktop 2 and close YaKuake again, it switches back to desktop 1. - Oct 09 2005
KBiff

Email by granroth 8 comments

The Dutch translation is really really bad in KBiff, so I improved it.

I sent the translation to the author, but no reaction so far. But you can download the *.po and the *.mo file from my webspace: http://home.hccnet.nl/bram_s/stuff/kbiff_nl.tar.bz2

Put the kbiff.mo in $KDEDIR/share/locale/nl/LC_MESSAGES and enjoy KBiff without annoying spelling errors. - Oct 05 2005
Hardware Messages MOCKUP

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by RikRat 26 comments

Hi,

The idea of notification for new hardware is nice, but this is quite intrusive.

Why not make a passive popup? In these popups you can make hyperlinks so you can still request Details if you want to.
Clicking OK for everytime you plug something in/out is quite tiresome in my opinion. Reminds me of Windows XP with it's annoying balloons which stay on screen until you click on it. - Oct 04 2005

kdesvn

Developers Apps by alwin 175 comments

Hi,

Great app, exactly what I was looking for. The commandline was getting more and more annoying.

I started to translate kdesvn to Dutch. But I saw some obscure strings with Alt+C, Alt+L. AFAIK, these are not required.

Example:

buttonHelp->setText( tr2i18n( "He&lp" ) );
buttonHelp->setAccel( QKeySequence( tr2i18n( "Alt+L" ) ) );

The & is enough to make the accellerator work, so the second statement is redundant. Could you please remove those setAccel lines? - Jul 30 2005
KSniffer

Network by kdeveloper 58 comments

Ah... solved :) No libpcap installed.

However, I don't like the check in ksniffer/configure.in.in. Just adding the ksniffer folder to DO_NOT_COMPILE is not very user friendly. I'd rather see a warning *afterwards* instead of in the middle of the output mess created by configure. - Jul 29 2005

...only the po subdir is being built?

You should fix your templates and do a re-release (e.g. by running make -f Makefile.cvs) - Jul 29 2005

Funny, I was just about to search for this app on KAO, but then I saw you *just* updated it :) Installing right now.

BTW, I see there are 15 fuzzies in my translation. What a pity, I'll try to catch up next time. - Jul 29 2005

First, excuse me for the double post, I don't know what happened.
Second, this comment is invalid since I updated KDiary to version 0.2. It should work now with KDE 3.4. - Jul 05 2005

KDiary

Groupware by bram85 14 comments

Apperently, this program does not work under KDE 3.4. This is what you should do:


Download and extract kdiary
Download and apply my patch from http://home.hccnet.nl/bram_s/stuff/kdiary_kde3.4.diff
Move to the top level dir of kdiary
Get a new admin dir:
svn co https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kde-common/admin
Get a new Makefile.cvs:
http://websvn.kde.org/*checkout*/branches/KDE/3.4/kdelibs/Makefile.cvs?rev=409205
and put it in the top level dir.
Run: make -f Makefile.cvs
Then, do the usual ./configure ; make ; make install


Note: You need autoconf and automake to perform these steps! I used automake-1.7. - Jun 13 2005

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by zvonSully 34 comments

I have also thought of this option on the way back from FOSDEM, a couple of months ago. I think a slider widget might be more appropiate for this, ranging from "easy" to "advanced".
Every widget in the Control Panel should have some difficulty value attached, and based on the slider's value, the widget will be shown or hidden. - Jun 05 2005
